Book review: The Earth Key by: Jennifer L. Kelly

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the first review of 2017 on my blog! As you can tell by the title I am going to be reviewing The Earth Key by the wonderful Jennifer L. Kelly! Let’s get right into it!

*I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review*

What a great sequel! You don’t get many of these in a lifetime! Of course, it did have some flaws as all books do. But the only thing I had a big problem with was that there were a lot of parts that didn’t seem to be that important or could have been shortened. That was really the only bad part!

Now that I’ve got the bad stuff out of the way why don’t I get to the good stuff, and boy is there a lot! To begin with, there is Ka’s mother. I can almost guarantee that most people were surprised by this. I never would have guessed that it would happen from the way the first book went. It was an amazing plot twist to keep a series that could drag on with the same goal in all 5 books. I always liked her mom as a character and knowing that she gave up so much for love makes me respect her even more!

But with a good character, there is always a bad character. I know it may seem weird to you but I actually didn’t love Ka’s father. It may be that he wasn’t characterized much during the first book but then was a very important character in this book. I don’t know if it is me being picky or a decent problem.

I could go on and on about how amazing the plot is but I don’t want to spoil it too much for you! Go read it! Go read this series! This is one of my favorite books so far! I’m going to be counting down the days till the next book (59 days!).
